Doilies, Snowflakes, Easter egg, Flowers, Crosses, Motifs, Hearts, Butterflies, Pendants, Earrings, Necklaces and Suncatcher,

Gwen has had a long break from tatting but she finally got back to it and worked very industriously on row 7 of the Clover doily by Eileen Stafford. She took a break from row 8 to start Snowflake #7 from Festive Snowflakes and Ornaments For Needle and Shuttle Tatters.

Jane used Cebelia size 10 and Milford Satin 3-ply to tat these Easter eggs designed by Jane Eborall. This flower was designed by Martha Ess, which called for a regular chain for the stem, but Jane used Victorian sets and added a clasp to make a dangle.

Julie tatted this pattern by Mary Konior called Mark My Words. Both of these are done in size 10 thread. She started another one in this pretty yellow DMC Cebelia thread in a size 20.

Nancy tried this design she saw on Vinnie's page without a pattern. The little bead is more lavender then blue, but the camera, as usual, has a mind of it's own.

Ancolie has finished her gorgeous Purple and Teal square doily designed by Debbie Arnold.

Diane tatted row 5 of Doily VI from Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz in size 20 Lizbeth #168, Latte Foam and it seemed to take forever, although it was simple.

Fox used #40 Lizbeth to tat this pattern by Karla Barraza called Anna's Doily. This Anchor Mercer Crochet thread size #80 is different from the other size 80 thread she has used and the red and yellow, are a beautiful blast of spring brightness. She completed this Jennifer Williams motif and have mastered the pretty celtic join.

IsDihara is tatting a bed for an adopted kitty of the stuffed variety and began with her version of part of Doily VI from Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz in Lizbeth size 20 colour 111 Cotton Candy.

Margaret tatted Kersti's Floral Bookmark and two butterflies using a Mary Konior pattern. Then she finished off the thread on her shuttles making some mini butterflies, all while waiting in the hospital. She tatted these three hearts, the two small ones by Betsy Evans and the larger one is the Butterfly Heart by Irene Woo, all done in Lizbeth size 20 Peacock Blues. This Butterfly Heart by Irene Woo and a mini butterfly were done in Lizbeth thread size 20 Sea Island Citrus.

Marie has used Jane Eborall's Easter egg pattern to create a bookmark in Lizbeth, size 20, Springtime and earrings in size 40, Scottish Thistle. Lizbeth, size 40, Spice Cake was tatted around a broken bracelet piece to create a pendant. These 3 dimensional findings were tatted around in Lizbeth, size 40, red burst to make some marvelous earrings.

Mica tatted these motifs from Patti Duff's Mini Tats some time ago and is just getting around to hiding the ends. Hiding a lot of ends is very tedious and she has learned her lesson to hide as she goes.

Orsi modified her resent pattern to make a necklace design using puppets Eldorado thread, size 10, but it was too soft, so she re-did it in size 20 Mercer Crochet thread.

Sherry tweaked her bracelet pattern and now has a lovely choker.

Sue's daughter asked her to tat crosses for ladies at her church and she picked out the colors for each lady. The 7 Heritage Crosses are tatted in size 40 Lizbeth; Purple Iris Fusion, Lizbeth Peacock Blues,and Angel's Love. The fourth is done in Tatskool's HDT Coral Reef and the 5th, 6th and 7th in Lizbeth; Bright Orange, Girly Girl, and Island Breeze. She has started a new project for a friend who loves green and she has been using Yarnplayer's video for how to place a bead in the middle of a ring. The next 2 rounds are completed and she still has to hide the ends, but she may wait until she is finished.

Wanda tatted this cross in Lizbeth size 20 #122 Caribbean. She likes to keep several bookmarks handy for those times a small gift is needed and her stash of them has dwindled. She has been playing with the motif idea and the one on the right the next try, which she thinks she likes better. Both are done in size 10.
